Death penalty not sought against former NOPD officer in Henry Glover shooting
Aug-06-2010 1231 0


The Justice Department doesn't intend to seek the death penalty against a former New Orleans police officer charged with fatally shooting a man in Hurricane Katrina's aftermath.

The car in which Henry Glover's body was found on the Algiers Point levee shortly after Hurricane Katrina.

A court filing Thursday discloses that decision in the case against David Warren, who allegedly shot and killed 31-year-old Henry Glover before his charred body turned up in a burned car after the 2005 storm.

Warren and four other current and former New Orleans officers pleaded not guilty in June to federal charges. One of the two charges against Warren -- depravation of rights under color of law -- carries a maximum sentence of life in prison or the death penalty.

The charges against former Lt. Robert Italiano, Lt. Dwayne Scheuermann, Lt. Travis McCabe and Officer Gregory McRae include obstruction of justice.

A black man from Michigan and a police officer in Ohio have agreed to sit down for “a conversation” about an incendiary video showing their confrontation during a traffic stop, police said.

The video, filmed by John Felton when he was in Dayton, shows the officer saying he pulled Felton over because they made “direct eye contact.”

“This is why I hate coming to Dayton,” Felton, from Detroit, wrote on his Facebook page when he posted the video Aug. 15.

“What kind of s--- is that? Dayton Police this cop needs to be on desk duty. Fake ass white collar thugs eager to meet their quota.”

The cell phone clip started getting attention days after it went online, and came to national prominence late last week, getting nearly 50,000 views on Felton’s Facebook alone.

It starts with the officer telling Felton he’s getting pulled over because he didn’t signal 100 feet prior to a turn.

Immediately outaged, Felton accuses the cop of trailing him for miles for two miles and then stopping him outside Felton’s mother’s house. Felton's brother sits in the passenger seat, and the two discuss how they "knew" the cop would stop them.

“You just needed a reason to pull me over, sir,” Felton tells the officer.

“Sir, you trailed me for how long? You just needed a reason to pull me over. Like, no disrespect, I don’t have nothing against police officers, but all the s--- that’s going on right now, that’s some scary s---.”

The officer lets Felton off with a warning, and when pressed for an explanation, he tells Felton: “Because you made direct eye contact with me and held onto it when I was passing you... I’m not going to argue about it anymore.” He threatens to issue a citation if Felton keeps talking back.

Felton says in the video he’s driving in a car with a Michigan license plate, which might have caught the cop's eye.

"He ain't about to Sandra Bland me," John Felton says in the video he filmed during the traffic stop.

He and his brother were heading to a birthday party around 11 p.m. before getting stopped, according to WKEF.

The officer is never seen in the video. He has not been identified and his ethnicity is unknown.

Dayton Police said they were “reviewing” the video, and announced in a statement Friday Felton “agreed to a conversation with the officer, facilitated by the Dayton Mediation Center... to discuss the specifics of the incident.”

"The traffic infraction was verified by the video; however making direct eye contact with an officer is not a basis for a traffic stop," the statement said.

Felton says in the video, during a moment the officer has stepped away, that the cop “ain’t about to Sandra Bland me,” referencing the Chicago woman who was pulled over in Texas for not signaling a turn. The officer arrested her after a heated dispute, and she hanged herself three days later in a jail cell.

Freddie Gray, the Baltimore man whose fatal injury in police custody triggered violent riots in the city, was stopped by police in April after making eye contact with officers and running away.

Felton’s attorney did not immediately return requests for comment. A person who answered the phone at Felton’s home said Felton was not available and hung up.

Dallas police say a man is in custody after fatally shooting his wife just after midnight Sunday morning at the Bank of America tower in Oak Cliff.

Police were called at about 12:02 a.m. to the building in the 400 block of South Zang Boulevard, where the 30-year-old woman was found dead.

Investigators said the woman came to the Bank of America tower, where her husband, 34-year-old David Thompson, works as a licensed commissioned security officer, to confront him about alleged marriage infidelity. The two began to have a physical struggle, and Thompson later told police he believed his wife was reaching for his pistol, so he shot her in self defense, according to the arrest affidavit.

Thompson called 911, providing the dispatcher with his location and the location of his gun.

He was later arrested and charged with murder.

Police said the woman did not have any weapons in her possession at the time of the shooting.

The first man an Alabama woman ever brought home to meet her grandma shot and killed his new sweetheart after he had Sunday dinner with her family, police said.

Antonio Williams, 22, is charged with capital murder in Jacoria (Shug) Ray’s Sunday death. Her body was found on the side of a Birmingham road about two hours after she and Williams left her grandmother’s house Sunday, AL.com reported.

Police have not detailed the relationship between Williams and Ray, but her family said the former Army soldier was the first man Ray ever brought home.

Ray and her new beau had an early dinner at her grandmother’s home Sunday afternoon. The two seemed happy — but grandma Cynthia Brown said she got a bad feeling from Williams.

"She thought maybe she had found someone special,” Brown said, but added, “I wasn't feeling it.”

The two left together in Ray’s Dodge Charger around 4 p.m. They planned first to drop off Ray’s 12-year-old brother at another relative’s home and then deliver a plate of leftovers to Ray’s mom, who was sick in bed and couldn’t make the family dinner. Ray promised she would be at her mom’s house by 6 p.m.

When Ray wasn’t home by 7:30 p.m., mom Deandra Ray called her daughter, but the 20-year-old didn’t pick up. Around 9:30 p.m., she went to police headquarters to file a missing person report.

“I didn't know at this point that they already had found her,” Deandra Ray said.

Police found Ray shot dead on the side of 47th Ave. Bridge around 6 p.m. — the time she should have been arriving at her mother’s house.

Williams was arrested a day later. Cops cornered him at a gas station where he was pumping gas into Ray’s car.

“He took my baby from me. There's nothing that can be done to ease this hurt.” Deandra Ray told AL.com. “That was my Shug, my chocolate drop.”
“He just took a jewel,” her grandma added.

Williams, a former Army soldier who had recently applied to attend Miles College, is being held without bond in the Jefferson County Jail.

A week before her death, Ray had accepted a job as a disaster claims specialist for a private company, her family said.

“She was so smart, so bright, always full of life,” her mom said. “She had the type of spirit that would light up a room.”

A student at Savannah State University in Georgia died on Friday after being shot on campus, prompting a two-hour lockdown as police swept the area for the shooter, a school official said.

Christopher Starks, a junior from the Atlanta area, was shot during an "altercation" late on Thursday at the university's student union and transported to a local hospital where he died, said school spokeswoman Loretta Heyward.

"Mr. Starks was the only individual transported to a medical facility following the incident," she said in an emailed statement. No arrests had been made, she added.

The campus of the historically black university is in the heart of Savannah, an Atlantic seaport that is Georgia's oldest city.

The incident came a day after two television journalists were killed by a gunman during a live broadcast in Virginia.

Al Sharpton is losing his daily show on MSNBC, with the network saying he'll be downshifted to the weekend.

Sharpton's "Politics Nation" has aired at 6 p.m. EDT on weeknights for the past four years at the ratings-challenged news network. MSNBC is in the midst of wholesale changes under NBC News boss Andrew Lack, deemphasizing its left-leaning programming during the daytime hours in favor of more straight news shows.

Sharpton's show occasionally put MSNBC in awkward positions, since he continued his political activism while doing some stories where there was racial controversy while remaining host of a news program.

MSNBC said Wednesday that starting Oct. 4, Sharpton's "Politics Nation" will air at 8 a.m. Sundays. His daily show ends Sept. 4.

The court has ruled! Judge Joe Brown, who was once one of the most popular TV judges, is now behind bars after being ruled in contempt of court.

Joe, now a former judge, was sentenced to five days in jail for exploding on another judge during a child support case last year in Tennessee.

In March 2014, Joe, who had a successful run of his self-titled series on syndicated TV, was acting as a lawyer when he showed up in juvenile court and went berserk when the court clerk said that they had no record of the case he was working on.

In a recording from the courtroom, Joe scolds the current judge for setting another court date, "I will file a petition for habeas corpus and close this place down like I did before if you make her come back here one more time."

The judge warned Joe about his combative behavior and eventually found him in contempt of court. The sentence had been delayed for nearly a year and a half as he fought to appeal his sentence. However, after the Tennessee Supreme Court refused to hear his appeal, he turned himself in.

In a statement, he said, "I will not apologize for vigorously defending my client and demanding that the court follow the law. What I saw was a miscarriage of justice and I did what needed to be done. I will serve the time and I will continue stand up and speak out for justice as I have done throughout my 40-year legal career. When our courts don't follow the rule of law, justice is in jeopardy for everyone. Thank you to all of my supporters. Your prayers and well wishes are appreciated."

A Michigan man who robbed a local credit union reportedly did so in a desperate attempt to help pay for his daughter’s chemotherapy, according to authorities, ABC News reports.

Brian Randolph, 23, is accused of entering the Vibe Credit Union in South Lyon earlier this month, and passing a note demanding money. The note said that he had a gun hidden in his clothes, but Randolph reportedly never showed a firearm and, according to the authorities, did not actually have a gun with him.

The young father has been charged with armed robbery. His bond was set at $500,000.

According to ABC News, Randolph’s troubles began when his insurance company reportedly stopped paying for his daughter’s chemotherapy treatment. Brialynn, who is one, has retinoblastoma, a cancer that forms in the eye, and needs treatment, that costs thousands of dollars, every four weeks, the site notes.

Randolph told the authorities that it was a last-ditch attempt to get money for Brialynn’s upcoming session.

"I guess it was desperation. Time was ticking right before her actual appointment came up," Brialynn’s mother, Asia Dupree told WXYZ-TV. “This was after the insurance was cancelled…[We] kept calling. No answer. Voicemails. No answer. No callbacks.”

Walking door to door in a city reborn after tragedy, President Barack Obama says New Orleans is moving forward a decade after Hurricane Katrina. He offered the city as an example of what can happen when people rally to build a better future after suffering a devastating blow.

The president's first stop on a visit marking the storm's 10th anniversary was Treme, one of the oldest black neighborhoods in America and an area that experienced significant flooding during Katrina. A cheering crowd welcomed him to an area where homes inundated by the storm have been rebuilt.

As the president went from house to house, he chatted with residents, calling out, "How you doing?" and, "We appreciate you."

Reflecting on the improved surroundings, Obama declared, "The fact that we can make this many strides 10 years after a terrible epic disaster, I think, is an indication of the kind of spirit we have in this city."

It was an informal version of the broader message Obama planned to deliver later at a newly opened community center in the Lower 9th Ward, one of the hardest-hit areas of the city and one that is still struggling to recover.

"Not long ago, our gathering here in the Lower 9th might have seemed unlikely," Obama said in speech excerpts released in advance by the White House. "But today, this new community center stands as a symbol of the extraordinary resilience of this city and its people, of the entire Gulf Coast, indeed, of the United States of America. You are an example of what's possible when, in the face of tragedy and hardship, good people come together to lend a hand, and to build a better future."

"That, more than any other reason, is why I've come back here today," said Obama, making his ninth visit to the city. He also visited on the hurricane's fifth anniversary in 2010.

The president stopped for lunch in Treme with some local young men at Willie Mae's corner restaurant, apparently a return visit. Obama noted that on his last visit, he didn't have the fried chicken.

Obama was a new U.S. senator when Katrina's powerful winds and driving rain bore down on Louisiana on Aug. 29, 2005. The storm caused major damage to the Gulf Coast from Texas to central Florida while powering a storm surge that breached the system of levees meant to protect New Orleans from flooding.

Nearly 2,000 people died, most in New Orleans. Eighty percent of the city was flooded for weeks. One million people were displaced.

In his planned speech, Obama said Katrina helped expose structural inequalities that long plagued New Orleans and left too many people, especially minorities, without good jobs, affordable health care or decent housing and too many kids growing up in the midst of violent crime and attending inefficient schools.

Ten years out from Katrina, the rebirth underway in New Orleans has been helped by billions of dollars in federal recovery money, much of it funneled to the city under Obama's watch. The city has recovered much of its pre-storm population, new businesses are opening faster than the national average and better flood protection plans are in place.

Still, income inequality and rising crime rates are among the challenges that remain in a place Mayor Mitch Landrieu calls "America's comeback city."

Obama says acknowledging the loss and pain Katrina caused is important, "not to harp on what happened, but to memorialize it."

"We do this not in order to dwell in the past, but in order to keep moving forward," he says. "Because this is a city that slowly, unmistakably, together, is moving forward."

Obama says the rebuilding was not simply to restore New Orleans as it had been. "It was to build a city as it should be — a city where everyone, no matter who they are or what they look like or how much money they've got has an opportunity to make it."

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Obama would stress that the federal government and communities need to start investing in "resilience" so that they will be ready for the more intense storms and wildfires that a warming planet will bring.

"There's no denying what scientists tell us, which is that there's reason to be concerned about these storms getting worse and more violent," he told reporters.

Obama's plan to sound a fresh alarm about climate change didn't sit well with Gov. Bobby Jindal, a Republican waging a long-shot bid for his party's presidential nomination who told the president that the anniversary is a time to mourn the loss of loved ones, not espouse "the divisive political agenda

"A lecture on climate change would do nothing to improve upon what we are already doing," Jindal told Obama in a letter Wednesday. "Quite the opposite; it would distract from the losses we have suffered, diminish the restoration effort we have made and overshadow the miracle that has been the Louisiana comeback."

The gunman who fatally shot a Virginia TV news reporter and cameraman during a live broadcast Wednesday was a former model and "high-paid companion" before he turned into a disgruntled former employee.

Vester Lee Flanagan II, who went by his on-air name Bryce Williams, had tweeted several revealing photos last week showing his glory days during his earlier acting and modeling career.

“Headshot used for getting acting/modeling gigs back when lol,” the 41-year-old wrote on Aug. 20. “And, wasn’t I a cute baby?”

“Hell yeah I’ve been a high paid ‘companion.’ You wish u could too!! Lol," he said in another tweet.

The series of photos, including one of his “sexy bedroom,” came to an end Wednesday when the former WDBJ correspondent used the account to live tweet his fatal war path.

Flanagan airs out his gripes against WDBJ reporter Alison Parker, who he accused of making bigoted remarks when they were colleagues.

"Alison made racist comments," he tweeted. "EEOC report filed...They hired her after that???...Adam went to hr on me after working with me one time!!!...I filmed the shooting see Facebook."

He also posted a chilling video showing the moment he walked up to Parker and cameraman Adam Ward, pointing a gun at their heads before his account was suspended.

Flanagan joined WDBJ in 2012 as a multimedia journalist and general assignment reporter. He was fired in Feb. 2013 for unknown reasons.

WDBJ-TV president and general manager Jeff Marks said Flanagan had a “reputation for being difficult to work with” and needed to be escorted out by police when he was given the boot.

“Vester was an unhappy man,” Marks said during the station’s noon broadcast. “Eventually, after many incidents of his anger coming to the fore, we dismissed him. And he did not take that well.”

Flanagan said on Twitter he had filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. He also sent a 23-page fax to ABC News, the media outlet said.

The outraged journalist had sued a local NBC affiliate in 2000 claiming producers and managers made racist remarks about blacks and fired him for complaining about it, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.

Flanagan claims he and another black employee were referred to as "monkeys." A supervisor, he said, also once said "blacks are lazy and do not take advantage of free money," according to the Democrat.
